We’re On Island Time

Greetings from beautiful Oahu! The Electrician and I are enjoying a wonderful ten day honeymoon in Hawaii, only a little more than seven months’ delay after our elopement August 17th. So far, neither of us is sunburned, which is largely a function of how much it’s been raining on this island. Given that a loud…

The Count Down (Officially) Begins

If we’re going to be honest, I’ve been quietly counting down since the day we gave Expedia all our fun money, but there are officially seven sleeps until The Electrician and I leave the barren wasteland of Alberta in March, bound for ten days in glorious Honolulu.¬†We snagged an incredible deal through Expedia for our…

On the countdown to the secret wedding in The Rockies, I kept asking him ridiculous…

Call Me Mrs. Sparky?

Here I am, back at home with three days of “back to work” under my belt since The Electrician and I eloped August 17th. Marriage to my sweet man is wonderful, and, while school is heaps of work as usual, I’m certain coming home every afternoon to my husband will make this school year a…
